And you thought it was just dogs that go around eating everything in sight, destroying furniture and cherished personal belongings as they go. Well, think again!
There are some cats out there which develop obsessions for sucking and chewing on certain types of material (fabrics, wool, rubber... the list is practically endless) - sometimes even swallowing objects which then, alarmingly, need to be surgically removed! Bad enough that you find your favourite socks suddenly looking rather cattily odd, but watch out for that hefty vet bill to boot.
So here's the scoop: Generally, a cat that is still chewing and sucking on objects after six months of age is considered to be showing compulsive behaviour. And (try not to laugh now) obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) actually IS a recognised problem in cats (stop laughing!). Some cats even suffer from separation anxiety and are more likely to steal and chew objects to get attention in trying to deal with that (really?). And you thought your toddler was bad!
